i was looking at them in my local shop today and they fell like there not good quilaty. they seem way over priced just because they put a cheap little pice of plastic over the toe they jacked the price up. the other bindings i was looking at for the same price seemed way better

Speaking to shop peeps that have demo'd them, everyone says to wait and see if it improves after a few years. Also, you have to be lucky to happen to have the right boot size and toe shape to fit properly in this strap.

i agree. dcp asked a kid rocking them at 7springs. he said he liked them but they took a while to get set up right with his setup. cool concept but i would wait on them.

I'll happily admit it if I'm later proven wrong, but I don't think this tech will catch on and last, the way Flow bindings did.

I love these bindings!
it took afew hours to workout how to get them setup for my size of boot, but since ive done that i havent had to do anything else to them, they have been ridden about 20 times, so fast to get in and out of them etc, the main reason i got them was because there is nothing strapped over the pinky toes (bmx injury!)

no problems fantastic!!!!!!

I love how everyone complained about the toe thong falling to the outside of the bindings and Rides solution was to add webbing to the inside. I don't think thats going to do anything...

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Why wouldn't a thin piece of aluminum flex?

Hatersssssss.

[edit] I typed a big reply to this thread, but then I realized it might as well be its own thread.

I'll just use this space to respond to the original poster's question: If you jib/park/street constantly, these bindings are great.

The V-Band is super durable, you won't break it any sooner than a normal strap (same material). You could argue that maybe the stresses are different and the v-strap would be more prone to breaking, but I highly doubt Ride would put something on the market that would jeopardize their reputation that way. People need to stop being internet experts and start thinking outside the box. And even more important, GO OUT AND RIDE instead of looking at pictures and forming uneducated conclusions!
